The Museum of Culpeper History, Lecture Series “Prelude to Yorktown 1781 — Lafayette vs. Cornwallis in Virginia”

January 19 @ 6:30 pm

$5

Join us on Tuesday, January 16 at 6:30 PM as the museum continues its lecture series!

Andrew Gutowski, museum board member, discusses the road to surrender. The culmination of the Revolutionary War came in Virginia in 1781. To most people this means the October siege and victory at Yorktown. However, there is a bigger story of an intricate cat and mouse campaign of British vs American forces preceding Yorktown. It includes a great cast of characters, including Lafayette, Washington, Cornwallis, Benedict Arnold and Thomas Jefferson. Culpeper figures in the story of 1781, with echoes down to the present.

This program will be held at the museum. Space is limited so save your seat today and then pay at the door! Admission is $5 per person but Museum members get in FREE.
